Where Knowledge Is Brought To Life

The University of Potsdam has been developing its own trademark program of an International Summer Campus for programs outside the regular curriculum since 2016. For this purpose, 3 program lines have been developed that offer you, as a participant, as a partner institution or as a scientist of the University of Potsdam, a wide range of services.  You are very welcome to explore these new opportunities.

Summer School Programs

Besides its extensive variety of study opportunities, the University of Potsdam also offers short term programs in the form of Summer School Programs. These courses are addressed to internationals. You can combine studying in subject-specific courses in English or German and pleasure within a short period. Get to know new friends, experience Germany and its rich culture. In this program, the ISCO works closely with all faculties and institutes of the University of Potsdam in order to offer you a varied and comprehensive teaching program.

Tailor Made Programs

We have been cooperating with international partner institutions for several years now. In response to the needs and wishes of our partners, we have designed specific programs which enable participating students to study abroad – in correspondence with the academic requirements of the home institution.

Intensive Language Programs

The focus of these German-language, intercultural courses is on deepening your language skills and teaching German culture and history. The combination of subject-specific courses in German-language with language courses enables you to develop your language skills. This will help you to expand your professional horizons and also deepen your language skills.
